Delta are offering customers and their clients the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from their paper purchases by planting native woodland, right here in the UK, through the Woodland Trust and the Woodland Carbon scheme.
Organisations wishing to reduce their environmental impact by offsetting their carbon emissions can do so by funding the planting of trees in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. The trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity. An estimated 25m2 of native British woodland captures and stores at least 1 tonne of CO2.
For more information about Woodland Carbon please visit www.woodlandcarbon.co.uk
When you choose to Carbon Capture your print jobs from Delta, you may use a specially developed logo on all print jobs where the CO2 has been captured from the paper purchases. The logo will contain a reference number providing confirmation and traceability.
The Woodland Trust aims to improve the landscape of Britain by planting more trees and protecting our national heritage of precious ancient woodland. Its vision is a UK rich in native woods and trees enjoyed and valued by everyone and they work to deliver three guiding principles:
i) To enable the creation of more native woods and places rich in trees.
ii) To protect native woods, trees and their wildlife for the future.
iii) To inspire everyone to enjoy and value woods and trees.
The Trust looks after over 1,200 woodlands which have free and easy access for everyone to enjoy.
With a member and supporter base of over 400,000 people its work and influence is growing year on year. Premier recognises the vital role that the charity plays in securing a sustainable future through trees, improving biodiversity and protecting the habitat of native wildlife.
The Woodland Trust has established home-grown woodland creation projects that offer companies the chance to mitigate their CO2 emissions. At the same time, organisations will also be supporting projects that improve biodiversity, enhance social well-being, help the landscape adapt to climate change and ensure the UK is no longer one of the least wooded nations in Europe. Woodland Carbon provides a strong external message but also has tangible outcomes – trees that can be seen and visited throughout the UK.
The Woodland Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales (No 294344) and in Scotland (No SC038885)
